Amazon tablets codenamed “Coyote” and “Hollywood”, powered by Tegra 2 and Tegra 3

We already know that Amazon has an entire family of Android devices in the works. But there are still some big question marks floating around these devices. Like, which CPU will they use? or how will Amazon price them? Well, today we got one step closer to knowing the answer for one of those questions.

According to BGR, Amazon is working on two Android tablets codenamed “Coyote” and “Hollywood”. Coyote will be aimed at the low-end section of the market, powered by NVIDIA’s Tegra 2 chip. While Hollywood, will be carrying NVIDIA’s upcoming quad-core chip, the Tegra 3.

NVIDIA will supposedly release Tegra 3 in Q3, and this lines up perfectly with Taylor prediction that Amazon will announce these devices around this year’s holiday season.

It goes without saying that these Amazon devices will launch with Amazon’s App store, and I’m having a hard time imagining Google approving them as “Google experience” devices. Meaning, you won’t be able to access the Android Market. As a long-time Market user, I don’t think I’m ready to buy the same apps all over again from Amazon’s App store. But we’ll see, maybe Amazon manages to convince me.
